Smile Where is acroread, mozilla-acroread, and acroread-plugins? Solved.


In the Unofficial Ubuntu Starters Guide it says that to install acroread, and mozilla-acroread you:

sudo aptitude install acroread mozilla-acroread acroread-plugins

when I do I get:

$ sudo aptitude install acroread mozilla-acroread acroread-plugins

Need to get 0B of archives. After unpacking 0B will be used.

Am I missing a repo. I'm in Kubuntu Feisty Fawn Herd 3. My '/etc/apt/sources.list':

#
# deb cdrom:[Kubuntu 7.04 _Feisty Fawn_ - Alpha i386 (20070201.1)]/ feisty main restricted

# deb cdrom:[Kubuntu 7.04 _Feisty Fawn_ - Alpha i386 (20070201.1)]/ feisty main restricted
# See http://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes for how to upgrade to
# newer versions of the distribution.

deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ feisty main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ feisty main restricted universe multiverse

## Major bug fix updates produced after the final release of the
## distribution.
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ feisty-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ feisty-updates main restricted universe multiverse

## Uncomment the following two lines to add software from the 'backports'
## repository.
## N.B. software from this repository may not have been tested as
## extensively as that contained in the main release, although it includes
## newer versions of some applications which may provide useful features.
## Also, please note that software in backports WILL NOT receive any review
## or updates from the Ubuntu security team.
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ feisty-backports main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ feisty-backports main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu feisty-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu feisty-security main restricted universe multiverse

## PLF REPOSITORY (Unsupported. May contain illegal packages. Use at own risk.)
deb http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/repo/ feisty free
deb http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/repo/ feisty non-free
deb-src http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/repo/ feisty free

deb http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/repo/ edgy non-free
deb-src http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/repo/ edgy free
deb-src http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/repo/ edgy non-free


## CANONICAL COMMERCIAL REPOSITORY (Hosted on Canonical servers, not Ubuntu
## servers. RealPlayer10, Opera, DesktopSecure and more to come.)
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu feisty-commercial main
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu edgy-commercial main

deb http://getswiftfox.com/builds/debian unstable non-free

Or do I have to install from tar ball? This was in repos in Edgy>Breezy.
